Why Bournecoast Holidays chose Bournemouth
Nestled in a sheltered bay on the South Coast of England in the picturesque county of Dorset, this area has seven miles of sandy beaches for you to enjoy. There’s plenty to do in the resort or you can use the area as a base – stay and eat here while exploring the rest of Dorset’s history, heritage and picture-postcard scenery. There are plenty of places for you to visit, whatever the weather. There are museums, galleries, amusement arcades, crazy golf, play parks and an oceanarium. You can bring friends and family of all ages too – there’ll be something for everyone to enjoy. Are you an adrenaline junkie? Or do you prefer a more relaxed pace? You can hike on the clifftops or freewheel gently along the prom. If you’d rather slow your pulse than get the blood pumping, you can spend your time just being pampered in one our spas. We’ve got golf courses, gyms and leisure centres, bowling lawns, tennis courts and the option to try beach sports. We find it’s easier to get motivated with the sand between your toes and sea views on the horizon! You don’t have to go very far for rippling waves and sparkling seas. Here you can take to your surfboard, kayak or paddleboard and get straight out onto the open water. You can bring your own equipment or hire it while you’re here. We’ve got a fabulous mix of shops – there are boutiques, department stores, designer brands and high street favourites. Our shops are close to the beach and surrounded by cafés and coffee shops. So, you can shop ‘til you drop or just pop in for holiday essentials. The area is well known for its bustling nightlife. There are cinemas, comedy clubs, theatres, casinos, nightclubs and plenty of places to catch live music. It’s hard to beat a sunny day on the beach but with a huge choice of gigs and shows in town, you’ll continue to be wowed long after the sun has gone down.
What makes this Apartment unique
The area has a host of award-winning restaurants, bars, clubs, theatres, museums and cinemas, as well as countless attractions and places of interest. With its ponies, protected natural beauty and thousand years of history, the New Forest is Bournemouth's back yard and for those of you of a literary bent, Thomas Hardy country is just a few miles away (Bournemouth being Hardy's Sandbourne). Continuing the themes, the tranquillity of the nearby isle of Purbeck was the inspiration for Enid Blyton's Famous Five adventures. Add to that the National Trust sanctuary of Poole’s Brownsea Island and the historic charms of Christchurch and its famous Priory and you have the perfect backdrop for your holiday - with accommodation from Bournecoast being the cherry on the cake.
Children not allowed
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
Whilst the property is probably ideal for short stays, and for those who travel light. But as my partner is disabled it was unsuitable for our purposes as it did not have enough storage space for the amount of clothes etc that two people needed for just over two weeks. Also apart from a small wardrobe there was no other hooks for hanging items.
Also the lack of available windows to open made the place very warm and the only way to cure this was to leave the front door open for as long as possible.
The cleanliness of the property was below the level that we would expect, and was obvious that the property was not checked prior to our arrival.
The owners were accommodating with regards to parking, allowing us to park closer to the front door of the property so as to make access for my disabled partner easier, and this was appreciated.
We are very disappointed to read your review and especially as we met you on several occasions and helped you throughout your stay and none of this was ever mentioned to us. We understand the apartment is compact and that is why we have clearly put in the advert that it is compact. Also the photographs show the apartment as a true representation of its size . With regards to the cleanliness we have to completely disagree with this statement. Cleanliness is of the upmost importance to us and we never let any of our holiday visitors arrive without it being spotlessly clean and checked . As you are aware first impressions are very important to us hence why we give our apartment the extra touches to welcome guests on their arrival with a box of chocolates, a toiletry pack for the bathroom and chocolate’s on the pillows. Also, as you stated, we went out of our way to make sure that we accommodated you with the parking.
Quiet and easy to access
The property was very comfortable, quiet and had easy walking to the beaches and driving to the New Forrest. I also did a day trip to Guernsey from Poole and this added to the enjoyment of the location.
Hi Anthony, thank you for your review and feedback. We are so pleased to hear you enjoyed your holiday so much and would love to welcome you again to stay. Regards, Bournecoast Holiday Agents.

Holidays are special! They form many of the best life memories and provide a rare opportunity for FREEDOM. Freedom to relax, play, breath and choose, what you want to do and when you want to do it. At Bournecoast we give you freedom of choice by offering an impressive selection of Self Catering accommodation in one of the most beautiful destinations in the United Kingdom. Dorset is a very popular holiday destination all year round. It offers beautiful rolling countryside, dramatic scenery, charming market towns, character villages and miles of some of the finest sandy beaches in the UK. Bournemouth lies to the east of the county and offers seven miles of blue flag beaches. It is near the market town of Christchurch with its 11th century Priory Church, ruined castle and Saxon mill, and the stunning medieval New Forest. The area caters for diverse interests, the popular buzzing beach resort in Bournemouth with its vibrant nightlife; the gentler pursuits of walking, wildlife and bird-watching in the nature reserves and national parks, and along the 20 miles of Bournemouth Coast footpath; and active pursuits such as cycling, sailing, rowing, canoeing, windsurfing, kite-surfing and sea kayaking. Popular also for touring, Southampton, the Isle of Wight, Salisbury and Stonehenge are all within reasonable travelling distance. Dorset features some excellent museums, with world leading centres at Bovington (The Tank Museum, telling the history of military vehicles), and the Russell Cotes Museum and Art Gallery in Bournemouth. Other museums include the Dorset County Museum in Dorchester, The Red House in Christchurch, the Royal Signals Museum at Blandford, and the award winning Brewers Quay in Weymouth. Many smaller towns have their own local museums.
